Cardiovascular Health

Many common health problems can put your cardiovascular system at risk. High blood pressure puts stress on the heart and other major organs. High cholesterol can clog important blood vessels. Uncontrollable diabetes affects how well your heart works and--like all of these conditions----can lead to heart attack, stroke, and severe kidney disease. That’s why it’s so important to keep these cardiovascular conditions controlled. Each one of them has a specific treatment goal, an actual number you should be trying to reach. Do you know yours? If not, talk to your doctor; find out what your goals are and what you can do to reach them. Because a healthy heart is within your grasp today.
